EcoSwap CIC is a not for profit organisation that has four key aims which include education... Without changing the habits of our community we are unlikely to make a collective difference to the environmental emergency we are facing. We aim to provide a range of workshops and activity sessions which promote a more sustainable ethos through making, mending, repurposing and sharing skills. We hope to connect residents of the community with one another so we can bridge the gap between generations, religious beliefs, social background, political alliances and many more to bring the community together to work as one. We would like to approach the older community and invite them to share skills with the younger generations hoping to save some of the vital skills they possess such as bobbin lace making, darning and dressmaking. Meanwhile the younger generation will be able to share their skills with modern technology to assist the older generation in making more sustainable decisions.

What we'll deliver:

  • deliver workshops which integrate the community for the betterment of the local environment

Why it's a great idea:

Despite modern technology making communication easier than ever, social isolation is at an all time high. We aspire to bring back the sense of community that has been lost in order to make our local environment a better place to live for us, our wildlife and our native fauna. Individually our changes make a little impact, but working together as a community, learning from one another we can make long term, sustainable changes.

Steps to get it done:

  • Deliver Workshops
